Roaring Twos

Roaring Twos: A birthday celebration for a very special, lion loving two year old!

My oldest child is now a TWO year old!! I really can’t believe it. I’m not sure when it’ll sink in, but as of now, two days into Wilson’s entry into two, it hasn’t even started! How are we not a “two under two” household anymore!? haha! And how come nobody prepares you for the emotions that come with a kid’s birthday?! Mamas who haven’t gotten to a first birthday yet, get ready… I think it’s the mixture of thankfulness and dumbfoundedness that makes me such a crazy person for a few days around a birthday. How is my baby so big? He was just born! Are we raising him right? Why is it that friends of mine don’t have their babies here on earth anymore to celebrate birthdays with? Oh, it just all comes together! His first birthday was just like, what… a week ago?! I am SO thankful for my babies and realize what a BLESSING it is to have them here to celebrate with! You absolutely can’t take one day for granted!

So with that being said… drying my eyes here for a sec… we had the best time celebrating Wilson’s second birthday!

About two months ago, we taped 6 pictures of things Wilson is “into” and let him come in and pick his favorite of the six! The options were airplanes, Mickey Mouse, dinosaurs, Mr. Roarsly (his stuffed lion), frogs, and something else that escapes me… Anyway, we picked Roars!

So Roars (that’s what we call Mr. Roarsly) was the basis of our birthday theme. It eventually morphed into a “Roaring Twos” party. Lions, art deco, yellows, reds, and oranges!

I painted a lion, made an invitation, and went a little crazy planning. But planning parties for people I love is one of my favorite things in the world! So I had a ball!

A few of the highlights were the big round balloons (which I blew up by myself because who knew it would cost $100 to rent a small helium tank?! No thank you!)…

…the ombre cake (made with the new Pillsbury additive free cake mix, hence the “graininess” of the actual cake… Tasted good though!)…

…the overuse of the invitation lion (which I used on literally everything. Oh well! πŸ™‚ )…

… the themed food (which I think embarrassed Price because the fact that it all came out of my head proves to the world what a goob he is married to! ha! Pretty sure he still loves me! πŸ™‚ )…
